The stinging dance of shadow and sun
cast the memories of the past into a haunting light.
Hope, hate, fear and dreams intermingle

I remember.

Somewhere in the far reaches of the darkness voices call
just outside the circle of light
fleeting glimpses of half remembered thoughts dance

I remember

The timeless moon in timeless thought
watches as ghosts of the future battle for our souls,
victors and vanquished one and the same.

I remember

My heart cries in remembrance,
my soul flooded with pain.
The mind twisted with the unknowing of dreams.

I remember

The darkness creeps closer as the nightmares win the battle;
as I am enshrouded in memories of the past.
I grasp for the one thing that keeps me grounded.

I remember
